Post Bar

Hello hello hello!

How did four years just fly by? I feel like it was just yesterday that I applied to law school and somehow thought I would be able to blog and work full time and go to school at night. Who was I kidding??

I am happy to report that the last year has been nothing short of amazing. Starting with the addition of my niece, Peyton Faye. She is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever encountered and love her more than I could have imagined. Just look at her!!

I literally have hundreds of pictures of her. Then, somehow, Joseph and I got engaged in December!

Then…married! We tied the knot in May after over 14 years. It was a beautiful day and I’ll always remember how much love I felt.

Followed by a spectacular honeymoon in Sedona where we hiked, got massages, went to the Grand Canyon, and spent a day on a Razr ATV. We had the most fun and did not want to return to reality.

But, we had to return so I could graduate!!!

And then I spent the last 3 months at home, studying full time for the bar, which I took last week. This is what my office looked like the week before the bar.

Since then, I’ve been doing as little as possible. I have had a hard time relaxing… surprise surprise. I keep wanting to do something creative but really don’t feel like jumping back into my cook book scrapbook just yet. I walked around Hobby Lobby for a long time on Monday but wasn’t really inspired. Then I went to the library and got a book called Letters to a young lawyer by Alan Dershowitz. I have yet to open it. Finally, I was inspired last night to create a new project. So, I got out of bed at 12:45 am to begin. I hope to share it with you soon!

My post bar plan is to take August off to spend time with friends and family and to relax. I can’t work as an attorney until I pass the bar, and results don’t come in until November, so I am hoping to find some law clerk type work in September for a couple of months. With any luck, I’ll find something. I think I’ll start to blog again, I always loved it so much and have so much cooking and crafting to catch up on!

I missed this!!
